Apple Crisp

No fall recipe series could be complete without the mack daddy of fall recipes -

Apple Crisp.

I found this recipe online and decided it to try for a number of reasons:

A. There were no nuts involved. I really dislike nuts in all baked goods.
B. I already had all of the ingredients, and wouldn't need to make a special trip to the store.
C. It looked easy.

Then I just tweaked it and made it my own.

It was delicious. I almost ate my entire piece before remembering that I wanted a picture of it.

Crunchy on top, gooey on bottom. Just my style.

I made it on Sunday for our small group from church, and it was well received. Everyone else ate theirs with vanilla ice cream, but eating dessert a la mode isn't my style. It never has been. However, I know that this recipe is generally enjoyed that way.

And here's my revised recipe:
3 cups Apples
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/3 cups Butter
3/4 cups Flour
3/4 cups Packed Brown Sugar
3/4 cups Oatmeal
1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda

Slice apples, toss with the lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and layer in a 9 x 9 baking dish.

Combine all other ingredients, and then use a fork to smash the butter throughout the mixture.

Spread on top of the apples. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees or until top is browned and apples are tender.

Ooh, I like the idea of nutmeg.

Looks delicious, Jessica!

I was planning on making apple crisp tonight and think I'll try your recipe instead of the cookbook. Thanks :)

My mom made us apple crisp on was gone by Sunday. Yeah, we were wondering who broke into our house because there is no way WE ate the entire 9x13 pan ourselves!
